Hi. I’m Joelle.
Owner and Lead Wedding Planner
I am the owner and lead wedding planner for A Charming Occasion, but I’m also a blogger, calligrapher, and lover of all things beautiful. Before I started my company, I worked in documentation and project management for a software company, but I always felt like there was a creative part of me that was just…missing. In 2011, I decided to combine my passion for pretty things with my love for organization, and A Charming Occasion was born! In the years since, I’ve coordinated events of all types, from corporate banquets to intimate dinner parties, bridal showers to rehearsal dinners, not to mention the dozens of weddings I’ve coordinated under A Charming Occasion’s name.
Just in case you’re interested in knowing a little bit more about me, I love wine tasting, window shopping at Kate Spade, and throwing my own cocktail parties, which often include mini cupcakes and handmade invitations. Oh, and if you’re wondering, my favorite color is pink, I own a few too many skirts with polka dots, and I like to wear bows in my hair.
My passion in life is making people smile, and I firmly believe that everyone should have their perfect day. It’s why I do what I do!
This is Emily.
Assistant Wedding Coordinator
Also known as the most amazing assistant I could ask for, Emily is a senior at California Lutheran University, and has been training under me at A Charming Occasion for almost a year now. She has a similar love for hair bows and Kate Spade, but beyond that, we’re the perfect team when working a wedding together. She is one of the hardest working, sweetest people I’ve ever had the privilege to work with, and I just know that you’ll love her as much as I do!
